New Release: Fall Down Dead DVD

Fall Down Dead movie scene

Dominique Swain is stalked by a serial killer in Fall Down Dead.

On June 14, 2011, Image Entertainment released the 2007 serial killer movie Fall Down Dead on DVD.

Starring Dominique Swain (Lolita), Udo Kier (My Son, My Son, What Have Ye Done) and the late David Carradine (Dark Fields), the film is, well, one of those ridiculously lousy movies that’s so bad, it succeeds as a guilty pleasure.

In the horror film, it’s Christmas Eve when single mother Christie Wallace (Swain) stumbles across The Picasso Killer (Kier) — a serial murderer who considers his mutilated victims to be works of art — just as he’s finishing up with a victim. Fleeing to a nearby office building, she ends up trapped inside with a low-rent security guard, Wade (Carradine), a pair of detectives (Mehment Gunsur, R. Keith Harris) and a bunch of hangers-on who don’t have much time to make much of an impression as the Picasso Killer begins knocking them off one by one.

Directed by Jon Keeyes (Living & Dying), Fall Down Dead is the kind of slasher/serial killer movie you’ve seen done to better effect many other times, but it still offers the requisite doses of blood, violence and nudity that the genre demands. And coupled with its cast of familiar faces, that’s all it needs to satisfy those looking for some gasps … and unintentional laughs!

No bonus features are on the DVD, which has a list price of $27.97.
